Today and yesterday I have used the Metropolitan Transit Authority's trains to go to work. I have been a big believer in public transportation, as long as I personally didn't have to use it.
However, the experience has been fun and suprisingly restful. Although I still can't imagine how people do this for years on end, it's nice going from theory to practice.
And perhaps it's just that we pay attention to the most proximal danger, but I can't stop thinking about Colin Ferguson. I imagine for the people who do this as a way of life, that must have been a violation on the same order as a home invasion.
